Sigh… There are some days when it’s just not worth it. There’ve been a lot of those lately, but there have been enough good days that you keep your chin up and just keep going. I think tonight will help; I’m going as Weird Al to our ward Halloween party. Who knew that with the right shirt and a wig, I actually am a fairly good impression. Personally, I feel strangely un-complemented.
Well aside from the totally unbelievable nature of the film (they feel for a thousand miles and landed softly in a natural water slide…), there wasn’t too much. Having said that, you must understand that Brendan Fraser is one of our favorite actors. He’s just fun to watch in his own goofy kind of way. I think part of that comes from knowing that he probably had the potential to be a very serious and classic actor but he chose a silly, fun route.
There were some boring parts, and I frankly found the “arrival” at the center of the earth to be somewhat less a journey as an express train.
Well, we do like Brendan Fraser. The dialog was fun enough though silly. No sex, no language. All good things.
The best thing of the film is that that is one of the better T-Rexes since Jurassic Park. He just looked good, especially when it is running. I’m sure he looks even better in the 3-D version of the film.
I kind of feel like I’ve done a disservice with such a short review, but I’m really just kind of not into it today.
If you liked Mummy, George of the Jungle, or any other classic Brendan Fraser, you’ll probably like this. That’s about all I can say.
2 out of 4 stars.
